I recall Guile VM much earlier... while Tom Lord was still the
maintainer. This is pre-1.0. I never managed to actually get the VM to
work enough to test/time it (I used SCM for my own work).

It was indeed scrapped due to performance. But it wasn't very
efficiently done, esp. when compared to Jaffer's original evaluator.

How to eff the ineffable?
